This study investigates and compares rural/urban population of Punjab (Pakistan) towards castestereotypes in Punjabi language. The data were collected from District Vehari of southern Punjab including its two adjacent sub-divisions Burewla and Mailsi through questionnaire and interviews; and analyzed using SPSS. The results reveal that there is considerable difference among the attitudes of urban/rural population regarding beliefs and foundations of the caste-stereotypes and their impacts on social life. Besides, people living in rural areas are more prone to using caste-stereotypes than their urban counterparts. Similar trend is observed in the effect of castestereotypes on their social relations.
